On the 31st week, freight rates in the Azov-Black Sea region has gone up sharply, reaching a level of USD 39 for a shipment of 3,000 tons of wheat from Azov to Marmara Sea ports. After several weeks of calm, demand for Russian grain products from Turkish partners has sharply increased this Monday.
In addition, requests for countries such as Egypt and Greece also began to appear more frequently. There is also an increase in interest in direct export shipments from the ports of the Russian river.
It is worth noting that the reduction of export fees also has a positive effect on trade: thus, the tax on the export of wheat will decrease to 2,681.8 rubles per ton, the fee on the export of barley will remain zero, for the export of corn it will decrease to 1,596.7 rubles per ton.
